2. Twitter profile image size.

If you need further guidance with customizing your profile, read Twitter’s tips for building up your profile. Or, if you’re looking for help troubleshooting with uploading your profile image, explore more detailed suggestions from Twitter’s help page.

While Adobe Spark comes loaded with pre-made template sizes for you to choose from, we also know that sometimes you’ll have specific creative needs, like a Twitter profile photo.

Use the “Custom Size” option under “Resize” in your Adobe Spark workspace to enter precise measurements in pixels, inches, or millimeters. In this case, type in 400px by 400px and you’ll have yourself the perfect canvas to make your custom profile image.

You can even drop a temporary circle outline graphic (with a 400px diameter) into your design to predict where the cropping will occur so you can optimize your image’s composition.

3. Twitter in-stream image size.

Looking to share image content with your tweets? Get started with Adobe Spark’s professionally designed templates to help inspire your creativity.

Choose from image-focused templates, infographics, marketing promotions, and more. You can even duplicate and revise any template you make for future use to create consistency in your feed. Explore animated templates on the Adobe Spark mobile app for a more dynamic design.

4. Twitter ads image size.

When creating your image content for your tweets and promotions, look no further than Adobe Spark Post. Log in into Adobe Spark’s workspace and enter precise measurements in pixels, inches, or millimeters. Search the library of templates to get inspiration or use the “Layouts” option to format your composition with a mix of images, icons, and text.

5. Twitter video ads and thumbnail size.

Head to Adobe Spark to make your video thumbnail using the same aspect ratio to match your video. Add images, icons, and eye-catching text to create a thumbnail that successfully speaks out for what your video has in store.

6. Twitter cards image size.

With Twitter Cards, you can use eye-catching imagery and video to drive conversion, create an engagement, or start a conversation with your audience. There are several types of Cards:

Website Cards are used to link your audience to your website or a landing page. Be sure to include a call-to-action in the copy of your tweet to direct your audience where you want them to go.

App cards are used to promote a mobile app in the Twitter feed and link your audience to connect with the app.

Direct Message Cards are used to motivate users to start a conversation with your brand’s chatbot in their direct message inbox. Creating an eye-catching card using imagery or video is the key to initiating this conversion.
